I Trained Her To Love Me

Do you see the way she lights up when I walk in the room? That's good
And the skip in her step when we're both out walkin' in the neighborhood
This one's almost done, now to watch her fall apart
I trained her to love me, so I can go ahead and break her heart
If you think that it's depraved and I should be ashamed, so what?
I'm only paying back womankind for all the grief I got
I've got the latest believin' forever I'll be true
I trained her to love, now excuse me, I've got work to do
I trained her to love me, and I'm gonna start working on another after this
And when I get that one in a state of bliss, betray her with a kiss

Well one time one cut-up rough told me I only do this cause I can, hmm
And I'm bound to wind up one lonely twisted old man
But look out, here comes a prime contender for my agenda if ever there was one
And I'm gonna train her to love me until it's time to do what must be done
Trained her to love me
And I'm gonna start working on another after this
And when I get that one in a state of bliss, betray with her a kiss
And I'm gonna start working on another after this
And when I get that one in a state of bliss, betray with her a kiss
I trained her to love me
Too late to stop now
